This month, four local supporters will be pounding the streets of London in aid of Young Bristol. The Virgin Money London Marathon takes place on Sunday 22nd April 2018. We have the following wonderful people taking part and raising sponsorship money for Young Bristol:
Fiona Lithander. Fiona is an experienced athlete and has previously taken part in many endurance events all over the world to support charities. We were delighted to be approached by Fiona to be her charity of benefit for the London Marathon. You can find her sponsorship page here.
Chris & Sheila Patterson. Last Autumn Chris, of Pattersons, stood down from his duties as Chair of the Board of Trustees for Young Bristol. Not wanting to part ways so quickly after over 20 years of service, both Chris and his wife Sheila kindly offered to raise funds for the charity by training to take part in the London Marathon. You will be able to identify them on the run by their ‘Old Man’ & ‘Old Girl’ name badges. You can find their sponsorship pages here and here.
Giles Drewett. This will be Giles’ second time running the London Marathon and he has kindly offered to raise funds and awareness of Young Bristol for us to continue our programmes across the city. He works for company Plant-ex Ingredients Ltd who are based in Avonmouth and have recently offered to support Young Bristol. You can find his sponsorship page here.
We would also like to thank Robin Geller and the Virgin Money London Marathon Team for offering the places for the Young Bristol fundraisers.
BEST OF LUCK TO ALL THE RUNNERS, WE ARE IN AWE OF YOUR HARD WORK AND HOPE YOU ENJOY THE EXPERIENCE!
